Chilliwack archer hits golden target at B.C. Championships

Garrison Archery Club athlete Keira Peacock is a provincial champ in outdoor and indoor archery.

Chilliwack archer Keira Peacock finished first in her division at the B.C. JOP Outdoor Provincial Championships.

JOP stands for Junior Olympian Program. Sixty youths from 16 B.C. clubs competed in the event, which was co-hosted June 18 and 25 in three locations by the Silvertip Archers (Prince George), Cowichan Bowmen and Burnaby Archers.

Representing Chilliwack’s Garrison Archery Club and competing in her first outdoor tournament, Peacock led the way in the preCub female division.

Wielding a recurve bow, she scored a 164 in the 20 metre distance, 140 in the 25m and 93 in the 30m for a total of 397.

Peacock is on a roll after winning gold in the JOP Indoor B.C. Championships just two months ago.

Trey Meier also won gold at that event with Cassie Tysnes and Alex Morrison snagging silver.

“It’s great to see these young people really focusing on their own efforts, putting in the work at the range, and getting results,” said Garrison Archery Club president David Krulicki. “It really shows them that hard work and dedication pays off and I’m super proud of the kids.”
